Four members of the Oxford University Conservative Association have resigned over anti-Semitism and snobbery.

The four senior members said they were quitting the assocation after members sang a song with a Nazi theme during an evening meeting billed as “port and policy,” the Telegraph reported.

Student members of the club are facing disciplinary action by the university and the Conservative Party. Both have launched investigations into the incident, according to the newspaper.

Two prime ministers and 13 Cabinet ministers are among the club’s alumni.

The members reportedly sang a song that begins with the line “Dashing through the Reich … killing lots of kike.”

The club has faced accusations of racism in the past. In 2000, four members were expelled for making Nazi salutes.
